Look Close...Closer...

This is our monster Christmas tree. My piano is a full sized upright grand, five feet tall and the tree makes it look wimpy. When I play piano the branches attack the left side of my body (notice the bench is in the tree).

Other than sitting in our living room like a manatee at a salamander tea party, it's quite lovely, trimmed in red, gold and sage green.

However, what you can't see in the picture is something far more interesting. Yesterday the girls added a dozen of their beanie-baby-sized stuffed animals. But more fascinating than that are the insects they added today. They have about 25 or more very realistic plastic bugs, including flies, worms, beetles, ladybugs, and spiders. They blend into the greenery quite well. In fact, you can't even tell they are there until you lean in while perhaps trying to look closely at an ornament.

My parents-in-law are coming tonight to spend the weekend. I wonder what will happen when they admire the tree. This weekend has turned out to be quite promising.
